ESPN's Field Yates expects the Jacksonville Jaguars to re-sign impending free-agent offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor this offseason. Taylor won't be cheap after peaking in 2022. He's been a staple on Jacksonville's offensive line since being drafted in 2019, playing every offensive snap. A deal with a per-year average of $15 million-plus could be on tap for the 25-year-old. The Jaguars' decision to go all-in on quarterback Trevor Lawrence's supporting cast on the offensive line paid major dividends in his second NFL season under head coach Doug Pederson.
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke said that there is mutual interest in re-signing impending free-agent tight end Evan Engram this offseason. Engram played a full season for the first time in his career on a one-year deal with Jacksonville in 2022 and set career-highs in catches (73) and receiving yards (766) while scoring four touchdowns on 98 targets in 17 regular season games. He added 12 receptions for 124 yards and a touchdown in two playoff games. The former first-rounder developed nice chemistry with young quarterback Trevor Lawrence and put himself on the TE1 map in fantasy at the most shallow position. If Engram returns to Jacksonville, he'll absolutely be on the TE1 radar in fantasy drafts after the elite names at the position come off the board.
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said that the team expects wide receiver Calvin Ridley to be reinstated soon. He can apply for reinstatement on Feb. 15, but he won't be able to have contact with the team football-wise until April 17. Ridley was suspended for the entire 2022 season after he was caught betting on NFL games in November of 2021. The 28-year-old was acquired from the Atlanta Falcons by the Jaguars in exchange for conditional draft picks in 2023 and 2024. Ridley played in only five games due to injury in 2021, but he had a 1,000-yard season with nine touchdowns in 2020 and will add more firepower to an improving Jacksonville offense under young quarterback Trevor Lawrence in 2023.
The defense of the Jacksonville Jaguars allowed 27 points to the Kansas City Chiefs in Saturday's loss on the road in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Even with Patrick Mahomes suffering an ankle injury early in the game, the Jaguars had no answers for Travis Kelce and they allowed Chad Henne to lead a 98-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter. On top of that, Jacksonville's defense surrendered 144 rushing yards to Kansas City. Despite the Jaguars coming up short of advancing to the AFC title game, things are trending in the right direction for the offense and the defense entering next season.
Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Riley Patterson made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Saturday's 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. After making just one of his three field-goal attempts in Week 10 against the Chiefs, the 23-year-old kicker would finish the season making 19 of his last 20 field-goal attempts. Even though Patterson is an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, it would be somewhat surprising not to see him back with the Jaguars next season.
